There are two season, Season 2 being my favorite. What's so great about this show is because the love between Domyouji and Makino is so strong. I myself would've given up because that much drama would've killed me. Domyouji isn't an easy guy to be around, and I admire Makino for being able to deal with it all.
The actors are great, I adore Inoue Mao, she's really good at facial expression, she's funny, charming, but also good with drama. The show wouldn't have been half as good if it weren't for her and the rest of the cast.
This of course leads me to Matsumoto Jun, who isn't just a hottie, but also a great actor and singer.(see theme-song by Arashi) I have seen him in Gokusen where he plays someone completely different, and it's great to see him play a character like this. Oguri Shun is of course my personal favorite. I know him from the movie "Azumi" and the show "Hanazakari no Kimitachi e" and ever since then I have been a big fan of his. I love his character Hanazawa Rui, and I would love to have him as my boyfriend. XD
Matsuda Shota as Soujiroh is great, his character is interesting and funny, and seems like such a great person to be friends with. Just friends, of course, because Jiroh is a player. Abe Tsuyshi's character Mimasaka on the other hand seems great in any way, and I was glad to see him back, just like Jiroh and Rui, back on Hana Yori Dango Final Movie.
The show holds many great characters and actors, I love Domyouji's mother, because she's a real witch. She's the meanest person ever, and I love to hate her. Domyouji's sister is great, and so is Shi-zuka, Makino's inspiration. I really love all the characters, because they have all been cast really well.
As for the story, love it as well. It's funny and you can cry your heart out at times as well. Once you start watching you can't stop because you just NEED to know how it's going to end. Will they end up together or not? It won't sure throughout the entire series, which is what I love. There's many questions you get, but they're all gonna be answered.
I've really come to love this show, just like the movie. It is great and it makes me happy.moreless
